A post-mortem on a woman at a Johor hospital was interrupted several times by a mysterious power disruption, China Press reported.
The paper said the lights flickered several times before the power went off during the autopsy.
Each time the operation team wanted to resume the examination, the electricity would get cut off again, it reported.
Baffled by the incessant electricity cut-offs, the medical team resorted to reciting prayers while technicians came to check on the power supply.
The woman had died in an accident and people who had heard about the power interruptions said the victim could not "let go" of her husband, who was injured in the incident, and their children.
